Each student will be able to think about, articulate and share a deep understanding of learning and self- through creating a video reflection.
Philosopher Edmund Burke said, “learning without reflection is like eating without digestion.” Learning and reflection are partners! Reflection involves students to take an active role in understanding their own thinking and learning. The process allows them to make sense out of previous, current, and future knowledge in addition to develop a strong sense of self- as learners and human beings.
#GOALS! Reflection, where students can think critically about their understanding to enhance meaning, helps students foster a growth mindset. The process involves powerful articulation, retrieval, synthesizing, forward planning, and self awareness. Don’t forget- reflection can take place before, during, or after an activity, unit, or time period. The benefits of student reflection go far beyond the classroom. After all, explicitly thinking about and expressing ideas through reflection is an important life skill!
